Do you know your hometown like the back of your hand?

Well a lady from 1851 had the opportunity to have the world in the palm of her hand, or at the very least London.

Created for an international exposition held there in London,  this piece of ephemera was used not only as an advertisement of where to go to see exhibits to the tourist that came from all over but as a permanent map for use at a later time.
